The operator must provide a pallet of raw material and create orders in the system, which can be conveniently done remotely. Once the system is supplied, the robotic arm takes over and operates autonomously without the need for human interference.
Equipped with a versatile gripper head, RoboCut efficiently handles raw sheets of cardboard of different sizes, placing them on the vacuum table for processing. The gripper features a vibrating knife for making precise cutting lines, a rolling pin for bending lines, and an inkjet printer capable of printing order numbers or company codes on the inside of the boxes.
Throughout the cutting process, RoboCut ensures the micro joints are strategically placed, enabling the safe removal of the finished cardboard sheet from the vacuum table onto the designated pallet. The remaining step involves breaking the sheet into pieces that are ready for packaging.
This solution can produce up to 75 000m2 of unique packages per month. The return on investment (ROI) for this system is straightforward to calculate. By comparing the cost of purchasing raw materials for RoboCut to process with the price of the finished packages, you can easily determine the financial benefits. Additionally, this calculation can consider the elimination of leftover packages and the freeing up of valuable storage space, further increasing the ROI.
If your factory produces packages by hand, then implementing this system can potentially free up to four employees, allowing them to focus on other critical tasks.
